“Go on a summer placement and discover if the construction industry is right for you.”

Andrew joined G&T as a year out placement and is now a fully qualified chartered surveyor.

“I was considering a role as a property developer before I heard about G&T through friends within the construction industry.  I was first attracted to G&T because I knew they were one of the top construction consultancy firms and because of the extremely high APC pass rate.  What really drew me in was the diversity of construction - no building is ever constructed exactly the same.   On every project, there’s always a challenge that needs to be overcome.  The opportunity to work through the challenges of construction is something you will never get in any other role.

I did a year out placement at G&T which helped me to decide my career path.  G&T sponsored my last year through university and I came back after my final year as a cognate graduate.  Three years on and I’m really enjoying it.  I work on high-end new build offices and office fit-outs throughout Central London and no two days are ever the same!   One of the great things about the job is that the satisfaction of overcoming the challenges encountered during a project’s lifetime.

One of the best things about G&T is sports and social scene.  We have ‘First Friday drinks’ on the first Friday of every month and many sponsored sporting activities throughout each week.”
